Lexar Media Starts Distribution of Crucial DDR3-1066 SODIMM Memory Modules

Lexar Media is now the first global memory provider to announce the immediate availability of Crucial DDR3-1066 (PC3-8500) 204-pin SODIMM memory modules. Crucial PC3-8500 SODIMM modules support module bandwidths up to 10.6 GB/s with a data rate of 2,133 MT/s at a respective clock frequency of 1066MHz — effectively doubling the data rate of DDR2 1066MHz memory. In addition, DDR3 supply voltage is 1.5V compared to DDR2's 1.8V, reducing power consumption by up to 30 percent and also generating less heat. The DDR3 modules are able to obtain these advantages by utilizing improved package, pin-outs, and signaling on the components, as well as an improved overall module design. The Crucial SODIMMs are available in 1GB and 2GB densities plus they come with a lifetime warranty.Source: Lexar

DDR3-1066? That's an incredibly low frequency for DDR3, pretty sure DDR2 at that same frequency will outperform it in strides.
